and peace report. i'm amy goodman. the obama administration has agreed to show two congressional panels the stated legal rationale for assassinating u.s. citizens overseas. on thursday, the white house directed the justice department to release a controversial 2010 memo to the house and senate intelligence committees. the memo details the administration's legal justification for targeting the american-born cleric anwar al awlaki, who ultimately died in u.s. drone strike in yemen. the memo's release follows growing calls from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle for access to the administration's guidelines for drone strikes and other attacks targeting u.s. citizens overseas. a bipartisan senate letter demanding the memos earlier this week had accused the white house of "practicing secret law." it also follows this week's leaking of a white memo that allows for the killing of americans through an expansive definition of what constitutes an imminent threat. at a news conference in washington, attorney general eric holder was asked what he is releasing the drone memos publicly after disclo
a long time, when the c.i.a. for 25 years, now he's been with the obama administration as a national security advisor for four years. and while he was not the architect of the drone program itself, he has been the architect of the obama administration drone program. and i came away from there with the feeling that i had going in that there is a definite direction of not capturing these high value targets and soliciting information from them through detention and interrogation. >> but because he said that it's ideal or preferrable to capture them so you can get intelligence. >> yet when i asked him how many high value targets they had captured in the last four years on the obama administration, he dodged and weaved there. >> he said he would get back to you with a number. >> the fact is, i know what the number is. it's one. he allude to do it a little later in his testimony. we captured a guy, we put him on a ship for 60 days and sailed around in the ocean, interrogated him. you know, that's not a detention interrogation policy that can be -- >> brennan also, as mike emmanuel pointed
: another pending addition to the obama administration is senator chuck hagel, who was been nominated to be the secretary of defense. if he becomes the secretary of defense, what is his involvement in the sequestration process going to be? guest: he will be in general in making these cuts happen. he is a veteran and a former member of the senate armed services committee. he knows the military. one of the reasons he was brought into this is because he knows how to cut. he knows what works and what does not. at least that is what the administration thinks. he will be an effective person, and leaves the white house hopes, in making these cuts take place. host: we are talking with ray locker, the national security editor at the newspaper, usa today. our next call comes from st. louis on our line for republicans. go ahead, greg. caller: even though the sequestered takes place, instead of spending 40 cents of every dollar, we would only be spending 38 cents out of every dollar. i did not know if it makes a difference. i think we need sequestration. thanks. guest: one of the things that many

, without due process. but now, the obama administration is using that same authorizeation, that same justification to -- the same authorization, rather, to justify the use of drones. the aclu among others, has raised questions about this. chamcy is the spokesperson for the aclu. >> essentially claimed that the executive branch can be judge, jury and executioner in cle declaring american citizens and targeting them for killing far from any battlefield >> bill: so that is the problem. i mean, it seems to me that we are really saying yeah, the president can be -- well put, judge, jury and executioner. due process? there is no more. due process is out the window. there is no need to prove in a court of law, no judge is involved here at all. no jury is involved here at all. that person is guilty. this high-level informed high-level official of the united states decides that that person is guilty and we just send a drone in to whack 'em. i don't know about you. this is scary stuff. this will raises a lot of serious questions. i think we have got to be as
americans are living on government assistance. now, is that the fault of the obama administration? is it the fault of congress? or is it the fault of the american people? we elected these people in office, and we reejected obama and his policy has failed us, kelly. we don't know what the middle class is today because the middle class continues to shrink. >> christy, what i hear angela saying and i don't want to put words in her mouth, but when you point an accusing finger at someone you've got four fingers pointed back at you. is it the american people's fault we're in the state that we're in. >> if the economy were a person, someone who had a life threatening ailment, made a miraculous recovery and still has a little bit after nagging cough. i absolutely agree that the economy, the growth is by historical perspectives, but at the same time a ton of positive signs all around. one is that the stock market is at its highest levels or near highest levels in five years and consumer confidence is still fairly high and we've yet again revised the jobs numbers in the last few months whic
threat. the obama administration has focused almost entirely on al qaeda. believing people when they came in and said, look, the only people who can actually give you advice on dealing with these radical folks are islamic believers, he so you must get advice from us. form partnerships with us, let us give you advice, let us tell you how to deal with this threat. and they made great inroads in this administration in that approach. but the blindness of the larger jihadist threat, the enterprise that is being pursued by the muslim brotherhood abroad, has resulted in the practice of drone delivered assassinations of al qaeda figures with what many are questioning or arguing is due process without that. and this administration's repeated declaration that al qaeda is being defeated. they know not of what they speak. the idea that al qaeda is being defeated is helping recruit others who are radical jihadists, because they are able to point to a united states administration that is so blind and so uninformed of what really is going on that they think al qaeda's on the decline when radical jihad i

the other obama administration has been, officials have been. i expect by now he'll admit it was a terrorist attack which would be a welcome change. look, i think he's hoping to be asked about drones because he doesn't want to be asked uncomfortable questions about other issues. and my fear is that the drones, is going to divert attention away from benghazi that need to be explored and divert attention away from issues like quite frankly. john brennan was the height of the bush administration the enhanced interrogation program. so he was literally the principal consumer of intelligence for khalid shaikh mohammed and others. if he claims he was opposed to it why didn't he speak out and quite frankly why aren't we interrogating people. when you vaporize a terrorist with a drone you vaporize their intelligence in their brain. we're killing everybody on drones and happening on his watch and ought to be answering questions about that. >> alisyn: and simon, you know how washington works, and things are not always as they seem at first blush. is it as we hear marc sort of saying, leaked to the new

could be achieved in the new obama administration, the second term you about it is ultimately the supreme leader who calls the shots. certainly the fact that iran told the u.n. nuclear watchdog last week it was going to be deploying a significant number of second generation centrifuges that can spin uranium three times as fast as ones currently used is not a sign of stepping back, jenna. it is certainly a sign of moving quickly along. there are some experts who think that actually more rigorous, intensive, sustained negotiations at this point will be more useful than sanctions. then there are different opinions at this point about this point of no return. some say it his iran has enough fissile materiel it could make a nuclear warhead. and that would be this summer by many estimates. others are saying that red line point is when iran can do that but do it in a way that is undetected by world powers so they won't really have an opportunity to respond in time. and some experts are frankly saying iran is already at this point is a nuclear power because it frankly does have the kn

>>> let me finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that religious organizations are not forced to pay for it? allow employees of religious institutions access to stand alone coverage for birth control from a third party. covering the costs with small offsets have to take parts or they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in don flikt. regular use of birth control is one that works. the other goal is to protect religions from doing something they believe is morally wrong. my own belief is that the solution the obama administration reached here is win/win. i say this to someone who believes in the clinton case, that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. getting birth control to women for free will keep it rare. to keep the catholic church out of that transaction keeps it closer to the goal. this is what good, smart, progressive, morally upright
of the obama administration. big fan of a variety, oppose many elements of obamacare, and so he had to be finished. the way to do that was to say that he was somehow responsible for this murder, this horrible racial murder that happened in florida, and by doing that they went to collar a change in media matters in these groups that we mentioned before and and then leverage a boycott against alec. so heavily boycotted that they had to pull off the stand your ground law completely. think about it for half a second. one of the most heavily gun regular this is in the country. they had not written any of the legislation, a privately funded institution. did you see anybody being grilled about that? i missed it, but there are grilling the head of the nra and saying, you need to change your position. he is ahead of an interest group. it's his job not to change his position. the left expect that he is going to, and they demonize a mentally does because the nra must be finished. this is a tactical maneuver. reseeding class warfare, the fiscal cliff. it turns out we don't want the best for ame

administration more generally -- obama administration more generally. for the past four years the executive branch has gone to extraordinary lengths to obscure the danger posed by those who practice holy war or jihad against our country. the administration has also sought to silence and in some cases punish those who have spoken the trute about this menace. -- the truth about this menace. mr. speaker, i welcome the secretary's warning, belater though it may be. however, it would have served this country and the cause of freedom far more if she would have so openly and to have led encountering it at any point during her tenure other than its conclusion. one of the most important architects of that see no jihad policy over the past four years has been john brennan, president obama's homeland security advisor and his pick to become the next director of the central intelligence agency. in may, 2010, mr. brennan publicly declared that we do not describe our enemy as jihadists or islamists because jihad is a holy struggle, a legitimate tenant of islam, meaning to purify one's self or one's commun

. one of the questions people often ask about the first year of the obama administration. why did you take on health care at the same time we're having all these other issues? the reason was health care is not just a huge moral, social issue also an economic issue. we have to deal with that is something that can be helpful for the economy going forward. if you ask, what is the positive on health care? how is the economy doing? what is the snerkt the economy that is adding jobs? it is the health care sector of the economy. i think it is -- that's partly because it is a dynamic sector coming up with incredible innovations, the amount of exciting discoveries that are looming on the horizon are bigger in health care than other parts of the economy. that's the positive. the hard side is it is a complicated side. the reason why we don't leave health care to the private sector because it is complicated. we don't look at someone on the street and say sorry you don't have insurance so too bad for you. we as society is going to take care of that person. that is what puts the government in this

on the panel are received classified information about how the obama administration is justifying drone strikes own american terrorists overseas. brennan helped manage the drone program. he is likely going to be challenged on it today. lawmakers also expected to ask him about waterboarding and for what he knew about some high-profile national security leaks. a lot of big topics. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuel is live from capitol hill with more. within those hallways, mike, what are you hearing about? what will really be the focus of this hearing? >> reporter: jenna, i think you hit on a lot of the key topics. senator i don't know mccain is among those very interested in brennan's position on those enhanced interrogation techniques during the bush administration. brennan came out and said he was opposed to waterboarding. mccain wants to know if there is any evidence that brennan was opposed to waterboarding. brennan said he favored some aspects of the enhanced interrogation program. as for the drones we expect he will take some heat from the left. also some heat in terms of kill
on the progressive left, some of them, and libertarian right are taking issue with the obama administration drone policy. this is a family dispute in my house. polls show most americans support, even most liberals if you will, even when it means killing americans who are plotting with al qaeda to kill other americans. >>> plus, four senators, two democrats and two republicans, are really working on a deal to expand at least background checks for gun sales. two of the four senators are members of the nra. if they can strike a deal, then a big part of president obama's gun safety proposals could be within reach. >>> plus, the terrific movie "silver linings playbook" puts mental illness in the spotlight tonight. we're joined by the director of that film, the great david russell, to talk about the issue and the oscar history the movie could make. i think it's got a shot. >>> texas governor rick perry escalates that war with his california counterpart -- he's not even slightly a counterpart. jerry brown is so much better. that's coming in the "sideshow" tonight. and this is "hardball" the place for po

has grown 700 percent under the obama administration. we learned yesterday that america has a secret base in saudi arabia used to launch drones throughout the region. lawmakers will raise questions of a newly discovered justice department document saying american citizens are tied to al qaeda can be killed if "an informed high level official believes the target poses a threat." but you government can do so without clear evidence. advocates disagree. >> that justified essentially a claim that the executive branch can be judge jury and executioner. >> strikes have become controversial. pakistan alone has had 300 drone strikes in the last decade killing thousands of terrorists but, also, more than 300 civilians. the retired general who ran the drone strike program thinks there should be discussion. if the threshhold is too low and we are too casual about it, we will forget how much scar tissue we build up in those countries. >> the white house defended the drone program and says it will provide congressional commit
